Big Brother All-Stars
Big Brother 9
Big Brother 10
Big Brother 11 - onwards
The America's Favorite Houseguest award was first introduced in Big Brother: All Stars. Originally, the prize was only limited to jury members in Big Brother All Stars, Big Brother: 'Til Death Do You Part, and Big Brother 10, where it was called the America's Choice Jury Prize. Since Big Brother 11, all houseguests have been eligible to win the prize (except those who have been expelled or walked from the game), and the name "Fan Favorite Award" was changed to "America's Favorite Houseguest".
